Flu season has reared it’s nasty head and is looking to give away some sniffles. Just this last week a handful of my colleagues were home sick. If you live in Montreal, you can attest to the fact that the weather is just as ugly as people’s coughs right now. During this time – whether you’re sick or not – it’s best to drink lots of fluids and get those soups simmering.

I created this soup as a spin on my family’s home flu remedy: Flu Killer Tea. This is a tea that will kill you and then your flu. It contains ginger, lemon, honey, turmeric and cayenne pepper. My family is especially heavy handed with the cayenne, but I went light for this soup. The soup version contains all those ingredients except the honey. I figured let’s make this tea into a meal that can also fill you up with some good carbs and protein.
